an = a1rn - 1

where r is the common ratio of consecutive terms of the sequence.

The nth Term of a Geometric Sequence

15, 75, 375, 1875, . . . a1 = 15

The nth term is 15(5n-1).

The sum of the terms of an infinite geometric sequence is called a geometric series.

a1 + a1r + a1r2 + a1r3 + . . . + a1rn-1 + . . .

This type of savings plan is called an increasing annuity.

The first deposit will gain interest for 24 months, and its balance will be
